Greg Abbott Is Actually Radio Talk Show Host Mark "Screaming" Levin?

Abbott today:


Wait a second! Where have I heard of proposing amendments and using a constitutional convention by the states to do so? That's the same thing that Levin spends all his time on promoting his book on his radio show:

Let's play "Stupid or Liar"

A lawyer who served as the Attorney General of a major state makes multiple propositions that are blatantly inconsistent with how our federalist system works and reflect a gross misunderstanding of the workings of the US Constitution, but are very popular with his far-right voting base. So, is he stupid, or a liar?

Governor Abbott offered the following constitutional amendments:

1. Prohibit Congress from regulating activity that occurs wholly within one State.
Because if Alabama wants to enslave their maids and butlers, then Alabama should be allowed to enslave their maids and butlers.

2. Require Congress to balance its budget.
Congress is going to win the Powerball this weekend and they will never have to worry about how to pay for wars or natural calamities ever again.

3. Prohibit administrative agencies—and the unelected bureaucrats that staff them—from creating federal law.
Because an elected official – bought and paid for by special interests – has a better grasp of everything instead of some lowly bureaucrat that might actually have relevant specialized knowledge for things like radio wave signal interference, the mutation properties of E.coli and the menstruation cycle of women.

4. Prohibit administrative agencies—and the unelected bureaucrats that staff them—from preempting state law.
Because an elected state official – bought and paid for by state special interests …

5. Allow a two-thirds majority of the States to override a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
Wait, what? Isn’t that what a Constitutional amendment is for?

6. Require a seven-justice super-majority vote for U.S. Supreme Court decisions that invalidate a democratically enacted law.
Because if we want to pass a law requiring non-Christians to wear a yellow star or a yellow crescent moon on their clothes, we know we have at least 3 votes on the Supreme Court that will support it.

7. Restore the balance of power between the federal and state governments by limiting the former to the powers expressly delegated to it in the Constitution.
Such as?

8. Give state officials the power to sue in federal court when federal officials overstep their bounds.
Didn’t Greg spend most of his time as Attorney General suing the Feds?

9. Allow a two-thirds majority of the States to override a federal law or regulation.
Again, isn’t that what a Constitutional amendment is for?

If I say our Governor is wheels off, is that offensive?

So the governor is basically an Articles of Confederation guy, not a Constitution guy. Sounds like he would be a really big fan of Article 7 from the old document, given his Jade Helm paranoia.

"You guys write the next one." Please, you had nothing to do with it. If you hadn't been prancing around France, you'd know our lengthy, fully formed document runs circles around that little thing you wrote in 1776...
